Cut Tube Open Before Throwing Away

When you think lotion, etc. tubes are empty, cut them open. You probably have another week or so supply of product left. I just put the tube and all in a zip-lock bag.

Cut Tube Open Before Throwing Away

I have been doing this for years with toothpaste, lotion, etc. My kids thought I was nuts until they had to start buying their own and realized how much is in there when you think it is empty. I usually just cut in half put all the "stuff" at one end and then put the other half of the bottle/tube over the other half. (05/18/2010)

I really need to try this with lotion bottles! I do, however, make sure I get every drop of dish soap. When I have only a coating in the bottle, I rinse it all into the sink that's filling. One more load of dishes, no waste! (05/22/2010)

I cut open a tube of face moisturizer and, seriously, I got one full MONTH of product out of it. I use it twice per day so that month equated to 60 applications. (05/23/2010)
